A measurement process can provide valuable guidance for improving the organization's capability to plan, monitor and control programs and projects. Software managers use the Measurement and Analysis process to enter and establish plans, to review the progress of actual performance against the plan, and finally to take management action to identify and resolve issues of poor process or product performance. The measurement process is the mechanism that the organization uses to provide information that managers need to manage the way that the organization requires them to. The CMMI contains a measurement and analysis process area that outlines key elements of a successful measurement process.
